The Proposal

It was a Sunday afternoon, June 1, 2014. Craig asked me to get dressed up for a date night Downtown. He picked me up and we went to dinner upstairs at Merchants on Broadway. After dinner we were walking up 5th Avenue towards the car when I was suddenly stopped by the flickering of candles all over the sidewalk on the steps of my favorite Nashville landmark, the Ryman Auditorium.

A guy leaning up against the wall with a guitar started playing our song, “All of Me” by John Legend. Craig took me by the hand and we started dancing. When the song was nearly over, he knelt down on one knee and with a big grin said…”well, you’ve been wantin’ this for a long time…will you marry me?” Of course the answer was Yes! The moment was completed with photographers, and videographers capturing everything. It couldn’t have been more special and perfect!
